The Enamoured Way: Patrick Leigh Fermor and Romania
An evening celebrating Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915-2011), war hero, towering cultural personality and the most revered travel writer in Britain for decades, who transcribed, in hundreds of exquisite pages, the jubilation of his encounter with the people and the landscapes of Romania.
Historian and travel writer Alan Ogden, writer and journalist Tom Fort, as well as some of Patrick Leigh Fermor's friends belonging to the Romanian exile in London - Michael de Styrcea, Şerban Cantacuzino and Marie-Lyse Ruhemann, discuss the famous writer's fascination with Romania, examining his vivid and meaningful perceptions and observations, backed by solid historical, cultural and linguistic knowledge.
With the opening of 'Patrick Leigh Fermor: A Romanian Romance',
an exhibition following, through a collage of old photographs by Kurt Hielscher and emblematic excerpts, Patrick Leigh Fermor's Romanian escapades recalled in his hugely successful travel memoirs Between the Woods and the Water and The Broken Road.
Free entry. If you would like to attend, please reserve you seat.
